The Top 2017 Contracts With Only One Bid

Jan 30, 2018 4:23:29 PM / by David Rockwell

In 2017, $170,205,689,253.41 was spent by the government on contracts which only received one bid. Only one business submitted the bid for the contract and it was granted to them.
There are a few factors on why it could have been a one-bid contract:

The opportunity was posted for a brief period of time.

Since FBO only posts a daily email of opportunities, many businesses miss out on opportunities that are posted with a limited response time.
With The Advanced Procurement Portal, you can be notified shortly after an opportunity is posted - allowing you to be one of the first to submit your proposal.

The Government Agency went with the first proposal because it is exactly what they needed.

If you are the first to submit a properly written proposal, you earn credibility as an organized business and can be awarded the contract immediately.
Remember: the government has a problem and you are the solution. You want to prove to them that you are able to complete their request efficiently, and go above and beyond their request. In turn, this will lead to more contracts and a successful partnership with the agency.
